Nice viewpoint; I like the darkness of the base against the main body of the statue.

An imposing photograph of a statue that has often commanded the world's attention. You have just about reproduced the grey-scale from the bottom to the top of your image, Irene. I like your work here.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my "hanging flowers" Irene. I am going to publish the color version as my Monday macro entry (probably Sun. eve.).
